Very Scared

I was just told by my boss that on Thursday there will be a "team building" event starting at 1:30, prior to our company Holiday Dinner Party. But what has me scared is what he said immediately following that:

"Be sure to bring a beach towel you don't mind getting dirty."

So to recap: I need to bring a beach towel. That will get dirty. To my company team builder. In December.


... I think I'm calling in sick on Thursday.

that's like a code red in the world of office danger ratings, beware, bring duct tape too, just in case you need to restrain anyone to facilitate escape

That's hot! Which one of your co-workers gets to dirty your beach towel? Can I swing by your work that afternoon?

yeah, that's a head-scratcher for me.

all bosses, just let us do our jobs without any stupid "teambuilding" activities. one michael scott in this world is enough!

I think your boss is going to take advantage of you...

My guess is that you will sit on your beach towel whilst a "team-mate" drags you around the floor.

That's what I'd hope for anyway.

Beach Blanket/Towel Bingo. Dress up like Annette, guaranteed you'll be the team building-est.

Just don't give your boss one of those towel whips, like in a locker room. I had a gym teacher who lost a nut that way, and I'm sure you'd lose your job even if he kept both nuts post-towel-whip.
